im threeee!

last week I turned three… well that’s the date my mum guessed for me since I was a used dog that she got at the shelter. Nonetheless that means that I’m 21! Drinking age if I was human, but I’m not.

So then we started wondering how old my cat sister gizmo is… my goodness as if cat’s were not already strange, see my previous post… here… finding out their age is even more complex!

So mum and I did some research and this is what we found…
1. Allow 15 human years for the first year of your cat’s life.
2. Add nine years for the second year. A two-year old cat will approximate 24 human years.
3. Add four human years each for successive years of his life.

Seriously??!! My mum said no way is she doing that much math, unless its for a test in her pro-level animal training course.

Sooo we found a chart! This is how it breaks down…

Cat Years  Human Years
1                       15
2                      24
3                      28
4                       32
5                       36
6                       40
7                       44
8                       48
9                       52
10                     56
11                      60
12                     64
13                     68
14                     72
15                     76
16                     80
17                     84
18                    88
19                     92
20                    96

And in the end… we realize we dont know how many cat years gizmo is! Poor mo. So mum is looking for her city pound paperwork… update to come soon.

    I just found Koko’s birth certificate again, and a good thing – He is old enough to start drawing Social Security!

    Koko is amazing! If he gets a jury summons just make sure you point out he is missing his social security checks! BOL
